[Bioc-devel] Byte compiling of packages

R-2.13 introduced the byte code compiler package 'compiler' , which
can be used to precompile the R code of a package at installation time
(using the ByteCompile field in the Description file or '--byte-compile'
with R CMD INSTALL). I have been using this lately with my own
packages, and had some notable improvements (and also did not find a
case where it decreased the performance). I was wondering if anyone has
extensive experience with this. Specifically, are there good reasons
not to use this by default for packages?
